Bayes@Lund is the community of like-minded, passionate Bayesians at Lund University, organizing important events.

Our history

A Bayes@Lund mini-conference is a one day event bringing together people working with or interested in Bayesian methods. Bayes@Lund events aim at being accessible to people with little experience of Bayesian methods while still being relevant to experienced practitioners. The focus is on how Bayesian methods are used in research and industry, the advantages and challenges of using Bayesian methods, and how Bayesian methods can be used and taught in a better way.

The first Bayes@Lund event was organized in Lund, Sweden by Rasmus Bååth and Ullrika Sahlin in 2014 when they noticed that, while many people use Bayesian methods at the university, they were spread all over the campus. Rasmus and Ullrika thought: Why not meet up and share experiences and tips in a one day mini-conference? And so they did.
